Michelle Shiota, a psychologist who studies emotion, reminds us that emotions are not inherently good or bad and that all emotions have a place in a rich and full life.
It’s our relationship with those emotions that has the potential to be healthy or unhealthy. It is how we use and deal with our emotions – how we experience our emotions in relation to the situations we’re in – that is constructive or destructive.
The good news is that we can train ourselves to relate to our emotions in healthier ways. It is possible to have a mature and healthy relationship with our emotions.
